The deeper story is that a serial killer is stalking Salem - and you are their latest (though accidental) victim, brutally moidered in the course of hunting them down.
Along the main plot are a stack of side-stories; predominantly ghostly encounters of the recently and not so recently deceased, who's own deaths you're given the option to solve.
The side-quests only make for a mildly entertaining distraction however, from what is ultimately a very slow paced, repetitive, and basically dull game.
The novelty of possession, influencing, mind reading and walking through walls rapidly wears off and it becomes incredibly difficult to care about the protagonist - or really be all that bothered about playing it through. Its more of a relief than a satisfaction to be done with it.
Its a shame, because as mentioned, its a fascinating premise and very clever story. The plot isn't one of these overly insane twisting chaotic jobs - more a clever progression to an interesting conclusion; But the actual game-play should've been far more polished and engaging than it ended up being.
Particular high points for me;
The story itself. For some it will be predictable but I thought it was great.
Decent enough graphics; basic, not as polished as many other recent releases, but in no way game spoiling.
The demons are actually pretty cool (a line-of-sight enemy who chases after you if they catch sight of you)
So, SO unbelievably slow moving.Read more ›
You can only walk through interior walls, and even then there are "ghost walls" that are impenetrable. Possessing people is only interesting when possessing certain key characters, all non essential people wandering the streets and buildings have only two thoughts that you can read. They add a bit of life to the setting but are totally irrelevant. The thing with the electricals is almost entirely a gimmick.
The story is quite good but it's very slow paced. Side quests are dull and there are so many collectables that you could spend over an hour of your life just reading the descriptions. Once you have finished the game there is absolutely no replay value.
Graphics look good when you are stood still but when you're on the move, especially in the free roam area of Salem town, the action can grind to a halt with great frequency. It's annoying and not something I expect from a game when I've installed it on my hard drive.
The soundtrack is suitably eerie but it's very repetitive
Not much combat in the game, I bought it for this reason, but even the small amount there is gets frustrating as the "hide" function doesn't really do much once you've been spotted.
Overall I didn't particularly enjoy this game.
